. first presidential debate held in denver. the universe view even amongst the staunchest obama supportirs was that mitt romney won the debate. and tingle up his leg hearing obama speak he was in such a melt down he it is tangled run the leg because he wet his pants. some of the excuses for the president not being much better than the empty chair that clint east wood revealed . al gore thought it was thaltitude of denver. i think the former vice president may have been a little high. but another ridiculous made on another net work and he with a straight face suggests that obama didn't debate well because he was black. what after geth elected as president of the united states and serving four years bark obama walked out on the stage and said i am black, i can't take on the white guy. whether in sports or music or acting some days you don't have the juice. we squeezed out what we could and i will offer my humble and accurate assessment of the efirst of all mitt romney countering what the obama came pair is saying about his tax proposal. >> i have five boys and i am used to people saying some
. president obama, what is his greatest hazard? >> there are times with debates back in the democratic primary he comes off smug and seems condescending and patronizing. he is not a position to do that but it was in the year him. >> the think he will say like senator 2010 to find her likable enough? >> i don't think we will see him repeat that mistake. lou: the romney campaign says they will not bring up the 2007 speech want you think of their choice? >> it is interesting. the two different arguments obama uses we cannot be divisive to make an incendiary comments. but to look at the mainstream media types that say we were there and it makes you wonder about their judgment how did they cover it but not cover some much rhetoric? that is a harsh criticism to make for our like to think if i cover the speech at that time that would not only be in my story but it is significant to say that. >> you question the news judgment i question the ideological judgment. it is lacking and we will go things that happened in the speech but the one element we will discuss tonight as if list send to candidate obam
debate. the first time president obama and mitt romney have met in person in five years. tonight of course, they will share the stage in denver. a coin toss decided the order. president obama speaks first, mitt romney will have the last word. romney ran the gauntlet during the primary. he did 23 debates. the president has practiced five mock debates before tonight and it's not too late to convince voters, there's a new poll, florida and virginia virtually tied. in ohio, the president has a comfortable seven-point lead. last night, conservatives started circulating this video. a 2007 speech that then senator obama gave at hampton university, criticizing the federal response to hurricane katrina. >> people ask me whether they thought race was the reason the response was so slow. well, no, this information was color blind in its incompetence. >> in north carolina, joe biden went off script and said the middle class has been buried the last four years. this morning, they've turned a clip into a web video. >> the middle class in america is hurting. >> middle class has been buried the
similar to president obama when it comes to debating. >> i think that obama has shown considerably more ability to connect to the american people. >> i think sherry is basically right. it offers a clear vision that is alternative to president obama's success.
performance, quote, obama arrived in denver at 2:00 p.m. a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver -- >> the altitude does affect you but take a 5 our energy drink and drive a few days earlier. [talking over each other] stuart: you agree altitude could have affected his performance? charles: al gore is saying mitt romney is someone who is smarter at being prepared. recently he is saying this is a guy who prepared properly for an important event when the president was at lake las vegas playing golf. that is the we want to frame at fine. you health and make my decision for november. liz: al gore said i will say something controversial and then he said it was the altitude. stuart: joe biden, tax the rich. >> obama and joe biden want to raise taxes by trillion dollars. guess what? yes we do in one regard. we want to let that trillion dollars tax cut expiry so the middle class doesn't have to bear the burden of all the money gone to the superwealthy. that is called fairness. stuart: he's referring to lead the bush tax cuts expire for the top 2%. where do we begin?
of zingers, donald trump advises on twitter, in debate mitt romney should ask obama why auto by fri states born in kenya, raised in indonesia. i think that's a great idea, don't you? he's already got his birther joke handy. why not go straight for the birthers. >> his facts are as accurate as the republican facts have been. that was never said in obama's autobiography. it was a silly thing that a publicity agent had made years before. but just to pick up on karen's point for a second, i think she's onto something. you don't come to a gun fight with a butter knife. that's effectively what romney is doing. debates are about, guess what, debates. that means you come with facts and ideas. and it's hard for me to understand what exactly romney is coming to this debate with. >> 20% across the board tax cut. >> right. which has to mean a tax increase for the middle class. it's the only way to pay for it if you want it to be revenue neutral. he can't make the argument about the economy because as we've said, he'll try to make the argument that obama has been an infective steward. we're now protect
what obama is talking about. it's utterly amazing, hard to debate somebody who has totally different plans than he really has said in the past. >> does this mean the president has fulfilled his promise to get unemployment below 8% and this isn't a one-term proposition? >> you know, you can't deny the numbers. 7.8% is, in fact, lower than 8%, and that's kind of the benchmark that the republicans have laid out. i'm sure they are extremely disappointed that there are better job numbers in the united states of america because they have been trying to sabotage any efforts, every day i see it in the congress, they have been trying to sabotage any efforts that would actually make the economy better, and now they're just going to have to live with that number. they'll spin it any way they want, but there it is. >> i think bill clinton would call this number lower, just simple arithmetic. jan schakowsky, thank you for joining me this morning. >> and happy birthday to you. >> thank you. thank you so much. we want to show you those numbers, 7.8% unemployment, the low nest nearly to yours. emplo
over to the obama -- >> karen? >> i was going to say the other thing, to julian's point, it's a debate which means unlike the debates that mitt romney did earlier this year where you have maybe 30 seconds to get in an answer and you don't necessarily get to answer every time, it's just him and president obama sitting there with a moderator. so he should be prepared for the fact that there is a possibility of a follow-up question that says, okay, how are you going to do that? yes, let's take the time for you to walk us through it. that being said, look, he's going to get a certain amount of gravitas just sitting there on the stage with the president. whether or not he blows that with trying to use cute words and phrases -- >> zingers? >> i think as karen and julian have suggested those zingers are not going to work. you have to have a sense of timing and rhythm p.. c he doesn't have no timing. it don't mean a thing if you ain't got that swing. the zings won't make a difference. the contrast between obama and romney will show up even more seriously the lack of gravitas. i think it's the
that president obama is bringing there. he should have brought this wednesday night to the debate. >> he should have brought this wednesday night. that's what most people are looking for. he's taking this news, tempering it which is what he should be doing if democrats try to spike the football or take a victory lap, i think that will be a big mistakes, but he's bringing a lot of energy right now which is what he's supposed to do. and i think hopefully people are going to expect to see that from him -- his folks will expect to see that from him the next time they debate. >> jonathan, he's telling the folks on sesame street, big board, elmo, you're not going to end up on the unemployment line. >> chris harris sent out a tweet saying is it big bird is the only thing we'll remember out of the debate and i wrote back, good question. because i think it's true. the president's on it. you have big bird showing up at a romney rally. today, we're talking about it now. it's something that really resonates no matter how poorly you think the president did, the fact that we're all talking about big bird and
. what he can do in this debate is lead, show us what he would do as president the next four years. obama has had a chance to do that, and he has not done it. his message seems to be i've done the best that i can. hang on, it's going to get better. just don't go back. romney, his candidacy has a -- his canvas has a blank space there. he can do that. this is a rare political event where both candidates are the underdogs. >> it is hard in debate to show your likability skills. >> the other thing hard for mitt romney, he seems weird to people, they can't relate to them, doesn't seem in touch with their lives, particularly for women voters. if you're an attack dog in the debate -- >> that's the difference between being an attack dog and drawing contrast on where you lead the country. bill clinton was likeable and did that in debate. that's not mitt romney's strength, why should he try to do it there. >> we have a lot of recent history with mitt romney at debates. sure, sometimes he blows it, betting $10,000, other times he has really come back and done quite well and he has stepped up to the
's talking down the economy, strictly for political purposes. and if barack obama can't do something with that in the next debate, then there's really some problem with his debate performance because this is a slow one coming in over the plate. the trouble that the president has in talking about the whole subject is he can't be too optimistic -- of course. >> -- because in the past what's happened is when he's gotten too far ahead of himself in saying that things are looking rosy, there are still a lot of people out there who are hurting and they don't want to hear that. the president has to kind of walk a fine line. but any rational person should know when there's signs of hope, to run them down and minimize them and tell people that it's not good news isn't helpful for anybody except maybe your political fortunes. >> incapable of celebrating good news. julian, jonathan, thank you both. >>> neck, mitt walks his words backwards. >> let me see if i can come up with a two-minute answer that might have been more effective. liar! lie, lie, lie, liar, lie, lie, lie, lie, liar!
